The Friends Café has been running for 3 years. It was initially set up to support events which were held in the Library. The Library Staff and The Friends of Lancaster Library volunteers decided to trial a regular café on a Wednesday morning,
The café continues to go from strength to strength, supporting the work of both The Friends and the library. The money raised through the café goes to support this work. It has enabled the purchase of tables and chairs for the seating area in the library, a piano which is played at our regular café by Sandy, benches for the garden and Christmas presents for the children that attend the bounce and rhyme sessions held at the Library.
The café is currently open between 10.30-2 on a Wednesday, where you can enjoy a brew and a home-made cake for a reasonable donation. It is staffed entirely by volunteers.
